    We have news camera people onsite to video a service and send signal out to web cast. How do I send them a signal via XLR through the GLD112?

    Assign a matrix or aux to a socket. Adjust level to camera as needed from strip. They may have mic level so you need to pull the fader down to suit them. If line level you should be ok.

    Doug,

    One thing I would advise is to NOT simply give him a copy of what you are sending to the FOH speakers because of EQ and dynamic processing it may contain. Instead make sure the camera audio is picked off before FOH processing. It will sound better if the audio is processed in post production if at all.

    Also if you are near the feedback threshold and are modulating the main FOH fader you will change what is feeding the camera audio track.

    Any camera worth its weight in salt will have switchable line/mic level input too. Use line in.

    This sort of thing is why a feed the PA from a stereo matrix, even though the matrix only receives LR. The PA’s EQ is done on the matrix, leaving the LR bus “pristine”. Each separate output, overflow room etc. gets it’s own matrix so they can have their own processing.

    Per John above, I always instruct camera people to with their xor inputs to line also. sometimes, they don’t even know they have that!

    I know this is a 5 year old thread, but I’m still not certain the best route to go (yes still a newbie).
    1) I have an XLR run from the board to the camera and setup an AUX.
    2) Hindsight that is not what I need, I need a feed that matches that of the main mix.
    3) I have done a little reading and a watched a few videos and it looks like I want to use a matrix.
    4) I’m not in front of my board, so do I just assign a main mix to a matrix?
    5) Do I send the matrix through one of the outputs (as I usually do with an aux or LR)?

    You can use an AUX too, but set the pick point to “post everything” and make sure the aux sends are all “post fader”.

    Set the aux sends all to 0db, and then if you need any changes, turn those channel’s aux sends up or down slightly to vary the main mix. They aux will still follow the main mix in genearl, but you can still modify the mix to better suit your video needs.
